Description: In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.

We love Sonny's BBQ. Since we have lived in NC we are not close to one. We stopped in Palatka for the night and went to Sonny's for dinner. Our server was excellent and the food as always was perfect. We lived in Homestead Florida for quite awhile and Sonny's was a favorite. There are a lot of BBQ places in NC but no one makes better sliced pork or ribs than Sonny's. I got the AYCE sliced pork dinner and not only the pork was good the french fries are always done just right. The garlic bread is my favorite so I can make a great sliced pork sandwich. The wife had the baby backs and the rack was big enough for lunch the next day. As always, Sonny's is the best

We sat at the bar and service was excellent. The food comes out quickly and they are very attentive. Dry rub wings were amazing and husband had hamburger that was delicious. Our friends had a sampler platter and brisket which all was good.

BBQ is a very personal thing when it comes to food. Every part of the country has their own style and type which is always the best. When I comes to southern style BBQ Sonny's has it nailed as a chain. We just had dinner there tonight and it was wonderful. My wife said the ribs she had were the best they have served all year. Great food and a smiling staff this evening. Nice done Sonny's
